(Note to anyone that wishes to watch this movie)
The Film was originally re-fused being uploaded becuse it was a very massive file, So it was converted into 3GP, then re-converted into Mp4, and that is why the quality is very bad, although Begger's cannot be choosers, so if you have bad eyes, i would suggest not watching, Buh Bye now <3

The quality is a little blurry... but the film is nowhere else to be seen online.

I had no idea they used 1:85 aspect ratio back then. I must say the PQ is par excellence. I can almost read the opening credits.

Original newspaper ad
Here is an original newspaper ad for this film from Portland Oregon, from papers used to insulate plumbing in my basement, circa 1930.

This one's to blurry
It looks like someone filmed it while it was being projected on their closet wall...with the door shut..through a dirty t-shirt. It's almost impossible to make out faces and there's a slight echo in the sound. However, I'll try watching it again at a later date because the best I can tell by the few moments I did watch the acting didn't seem all that bad.

What a treat!
I'd never seen Helen Kane before. As the movie started, and she was nowhere in sight, I didn't have high hopes. She comes on, and transforms everything. What a doll and a total hoot.

In (1931) Paramount/Fleischer Studios/Talkartoons, Created a Cartoon Called the Bum Bandit where a Betty Boop Copy's Helen Kane and also stars as Dangerous Nan Mcgrew. the only diffrence is that when Betty plays Nan Mcgrew she is more Dangerous & she doesnt use her regular Helen Kane impersonation.
